Becky’s Haiku: Fray, Veil, and Secret


More frayed by trials

 of life, then I veil growing

fear deep down inside.

Oh yes hidden fears

And insecurities; such

Secrets I do keep.

Like shadows in the

darkness, anxiety hides

beneath the surface.

Need to release that

Worry; let go of that fear

While to God, draw near.

Need to have faith and

Believe that He stays near to

Help and comfort me.

Remember his ways

And his love while looking to

Heaven far above.

Take his hand and let

Him lead through this new day and

His blessings receive.

When the day is done

And time to rest remember he

Stays near and knows best.

Say a prayer filled with

Sincere gratitude while he

Keeps watch over you.

I have just attempted yet another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “fray” and “veil”. I am enjoying the challenge of putting different and even opposite words in such a short poem.  If you like challenges and haiku’s then I invite you to also accept his latest challenge at this link: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/

I am also participating in a photo challenge this week with the word “secret”. To find out more about word photo challenges visit this site: https://thearanartisan.com/photo-challenge-words-2016/


Friday Verse Journal Philippians 4:6-7



Lately as evidenced by several of my posts this past week, I am having difficulty in not letting myself  just trust God no matter what my living situation is or what my daily circumstances entail. This is especially seen, when I have an unexpected and unwanted situation, crop up. You can witness this in me when you  read my Writing 101 Assignment 8: At the Wrong Super 8 and by reading my Writing 101 Assignment 14: Dear God I want to be the Captain.  As I take time to  sit down and quietly contemplate this past week, I purposefully kept my focus on God and what he may want to reveal to me. As I read various Bible scriptures, I was drawn to this passage and reminded that God doesn’t want me to be so anxious; he wants me to come to him, to trust him, and let his peace reside in my heart.

Philippians 4:6-7(Holy Bible New International Version):

” Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
